Indiana, United States
3floyds.com

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine. Apricot in color, Broo Doo’s nose has dominant orange, pine sap and floral notes, balanced by a glazed nut and toffee malt body. This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love.

Serving: 22 oz. bomber poured into a Founder's Harvest Party glass. Bottled on 9/25/14, making it just under 6 weeks old.

A: Very clear, golden-yellow. 1/4-finger foamy white head lingers.

S: Curious to know what hops they use for this, but I'm getting a lot of Citra. Pineapple, mango, tangerine, some pine. Very nice.

T: Big tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, apricot, some grapefruit. Barely a hint of malt sweetness on the finish.

M: Big and full-bodied for an IPA. Perfectly carbonated.

O: I have not had Surly Wet, but this, right now, is my favorite wet-hopped/harvest ale. This is fantastic. I'm getting a lot of Citra vibes, and this almost feels like Zombie Dust if it were an IPA instead of a Pale Ale. Founder's Harvest Ale is great, but sometimes a little too aggressive for me, and the hop profile is not my favorite. This one is a little more simple and straightforward, and nicely balanced.

Recommendation: A must-try for any hophead if you can find it. Drink it as fresh as possible! Would have loved to have this a little closer to its bottled on date.

I was expecting more intense flavors. It may just be my unfamiliar exposure to wet hops in past. Good, but not great for my palate.

Poured from bomber into a tulip glass. Two inches of head that lingered until the end. Apricot colored. Crisp and clean, lots of hops, especially at the end. A little dry, but a well balanced and very flavorful IPA.
